Pickled Corn

Greg B | Apr 30, 2008 06:54 PM

As a child in the 1960's, our summer vacation each year usually involved a car trip back to my Dad's home province of Quebec. Back then, driving along the 2-lane highways that were the norm, we often stopped at roadside food stands along the way. One of the things I always looked forward to was the pickled corn that I only ever saw in Quebec at those sort of places -- whole ears of corn, husked, and picked in large jars or tanks, sold individually and served on a piece of wax paper. I haven't had one in at least 40 years.

Are these still to be found in Quebec (or anywhere else)? My recollection of them is a unique sour/sweet taste that I really loved as a kid. I tried making it a couple of years ago, with no success. Recipes would also be welcomed.
